N.T. Wrightâs Doctrine of Justification, Part 1
The Christ the Center panel had the distinct privilege of discussing N. T. Wrightâs new book Justification: Godâs Plan and Paulâs Vision with Guy Prentiss Waters, associate professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. Dr. Waters is an ordained minister in Presbyterian Church in America and did his doctoral work under the supervision of E. P. Sanders at Duke University. Dr. Waters has written numerous books and articles, including The End of Deuteronomy in the Epistles of Paul, Justification and the New Perspectives on Paul, The Federal Vision and Covenant Theology, and he has co-edited with Gary Johnson By Faith Alone and has contributed a chapter to the recent publication The Law is Not of Faith. Dr. Waters and the panel discuss various features of Wrightâs book, such as what is new in the book from what Wright has previously published, continuities with Wrightâs past work, and the tone of the book. This a a fascinating and detailed discussion that we have divided into two episodes.
